I’m finding that the headers of delayed incoming email are giving Received times that belie the delay e.g.:
Received: from mail01.mail.esat.net (mail01.mail.esat.net [126.96.36.199])
by hannibal.dreamhost.com (Postfix) with ESMTP id 4EE86175DB6
for email@example.com; Wed, 9 Feb 2005 09:30:55 -0800 (PST)
was not visible in the mailbox when checked at 09:45 - 14 minutes later.
Anyone else experiencing this?
Could this correspond to a delay in murdock, the machine hosting this mailbox? And might the absense of a “Received: by murdock” field indicate that this hop is likewise missing from the DH logs that belie the total loss of some messages recently?
